3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Wegmans. Pours clear amber with a medium sized off white head, decent retention, some lacing. The aroma has a nice caramel malt presence, some floral notes, a bit of pine. The taste is a bit more malty than the packaging suggests but does have a nice, bold bitter finish. Enjoyable brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear dark amber with a rocky off white head. Nose is full of sticky red caramel and wonderful toast, some nuttiness, and lots of floral hops. Flavor is exceptionally balanced between sweet and bitter, with lots of sticky caratoffee maltiness, some toast, a bit of pecan, and a lightly bitter floral and grassy resin that lasts through to the finish to become slightly more bitter with a little tone of honey-ed biscuit.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
120zes of one of the best ambers Iíve had in a long long while purchased at Spirits Brick. Poured a clear darker super deep brownish burnt orange with a smaller quicker fading beige head. Aroma was very nicely hopped with lots of orange and citrus over a caramel and toast body with a touch toffee. Fuller body with stronger carbonation and a lingering tingle from the carbonation. Flavor of citrus rinds, toast crusts, dry caramel and nut shells along with some orange slices. This is a good beer.
